excessive drooling

hazel has always had some clear fluids come out of her nose when she is purring, but today i just noticed that she is drooling from her mouth, like big time! is this something i need to talk to the vet about or is it normal???

Re: excessive drooling

Drooling is often a sign of painful tooth issues. If it continues I would take her to the vet.

Re: excessive drooling

hi hope, is your cat a torti? ive found that some tortoise shells drool alot. there was this really cute one at a shelter i used to volunteer at and i remember picking her up, setting her down and wondering where all the water had come from. it took about 5 minutes of me searching for leaks in the roof before another shelter volunteer realized i had picked her up and let me know that some tortis drool and that thatkitty drooled like there was no tomorrow. apparently its apart of the genes that cause their fur to be orange and black? ive found this info online somewhere but i cant remember now.

but that could be a reason....

Re: excessive drooling

Bad teeth can cause other health problems, including elevated kidney levels and compromised immune systems.

If that's what's wrong, it's a fairly easy fix. A day at the vet's, a cleaning, a few pulled teeth, and she'll be feeling like a kitten again.

If she's missing some teeth, that can lead to the drooling as well. My girl cat's missing a canine. She drools everywhere, although she's particularly fond of drooling on the computer, esp. when I'm scratching her chin.

Re: excessive drooling

well the doc said she might have had a allergic reaction to something she got into, and gave her a shot.... i honestly do not think that is what happened but i will watch her and see what happens. thanks all for your comments and advise!!
